Health Tip: Understanding Heel Pain

(HealthDay News) -- When your heel starts to hurt, even walking can be difficult and incredibly painful.

The American Podiatric Medical Association says possible causes of heel pain include:

  • Heel spurs, which are bony growths that develop on the heel.
  • Inflammation of the fascia, known as plantar fasciitis.
  • Excessive pronation, or inward tilt of the foot as you walk.
  • Achilles tendinitis, in which the tendon at the back of the foot becomes inflamed.
  • A deformity, injury or chronic disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
